CBEEN - Wild Voices - Loon


All programs are now available for booking at the subsidized rates of:

– $150 (1-1.5 hr in class or outdoor program)

– $250 (half-day field study)

– $350 (full-day field study)

Teachers who are current CBEEN members may access one complimentary program (with up to $250 in bussing cost reimbursement) for their classroom in the school year. Up to 200 complimentary programs are available for the 2021-2022 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.

We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking.  It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.

As with the previous school year, we have a COVID-19 policy in place for the 2021-2022 school year.  Teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs this year. 

Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at wildvoices@cbeen.org

Kokanee Salmon Migration

Bookable Type(s) Half Day Field Study
Duration3 Hours
Locationlocal riparian area
Contact This Presenterjinot_deboer@hotmail.com

This field study is available in Golden only

About the Program
Part of the seasonal changes in our river valleys is the migration of the land-locked Kokanee Salmon. This migration is important to the survival of mammals, other fish, birds and the riparian zone.

Using an interactive story with props, a short skit and songs in the classroom, children learn the basics of the Kokanee Salmon Migration Story. This is followed by a trip to watch the spawning of the salmon up close and is finished by some games that reinforce the hazards of the migration.

About the Community Educator
Joyce loves where she lives and enthusiastically shares her knowledge of the critters and plants that inhabit the Columbia Valley. She believes in looking for the wonder of nature close to home: backyards, local parks and even the playground. And she's very fond of bats!

Please email Joyce at jinot_deboer@hotmail.com before booking!
